Mankind’s own future is at stake in the fight against natural loss.
China’s Kunming and remote networking are hosting a UN nature conference this week with the goal of halting the global nature loss.
Nature has an absolute value, but in the fight against natural loss, the future of humanity is at stake. The world’s food production, water resources, carbon sequestration and even the oxygen we breathe depend on the balance of nature. It is endangered as expanding humanity strangles free nature into ever smaller corners and rolls down diversity. The UN Habitats Panel estimates that a million species could be threatened with extinction in the coming years.
